Relive History

History buffs will find plenty of things to do in Charleston, SC, as the city was very involved in the Civil War. Legend says that the first shots of the war were fired at The Battery by cadets from the Citadel military academy. With so much history to explore, it may be difficult to see everything, but a tour of Fort Sumter should make the top of your list. You can also explore the Old Slave Mart on Chalmers Street, one of the few remaining cobblestone roads, or drive over to Patriot’s Point to explore this aircraft carrier and witness dozens of warplanes.

Let Your Taste Buds Experiment with Southern Cuisine

Famous for its culinary scene, Charleston is brimming with outstanding restaurants. When visiting the Holy City, you will never run out of great places to dine from fancy sit-down establishments to traveling food trucks. Be sure to taste Southern specialties like shrimp and grits or fried green tomatoes. But, don’t ignore the global influences at unique restaurants like CO, which serves Vietnamese food, or the French-inspired Chez Nous.
